The Rustic Deck


The Rustic Deck is a self catering lodge in the heart of Midrand. We are located in Glen Austin (a suburb of Midrand) and are very close to Gallagher Estate, Grand Central Airport and numerous other conference and wedding venues.

Choosing The Rustic Deck for your stay therefore gives you the unique combination of a country feel venue that is never out of reach of the big city, international and regional airports, major highways, Gautrain rail systems etc. Here you can rest and relax in our soothing pastoral atmosphere without ever having to endure long journeys to get right back into the action. 

We are very proud of our spacious chalets and we focus on the important things like really comfortable beds, plenty of hot water and great water pressure. All our chalets have covered secure parking on the property.

We can accommodate a total of 32 people, which, at a push we can comfortably push up to 40.

The personalised attention you will receive at The Rustic Deck will ensure that whatever you require to make your stay not only comfortable and relaxing but also memorable, will be attended to with the utmost professionalism, whilst always maintaining an ambience of casual easy-going enjoyment. Complete privacy or social interaction with other guests – the choice is entirely yours.

The focal point of our venue is the Rustic Deck itself which is an all weather meeting and/or entertainment area with great ambience. You are always welcome to bring your own refreshments and come and enjoy a sundowner or, when it gets a bit cooler, enjoy the lovely cosy fireplace while socializing with your friends. As we are a self catering lodge, we do not serve drinks on the deck.  We also boast a big screen TV on the deck for those avid sports fans. The “deck” is a casual, friendly, social place to gather and share unforgettable experiences.

Although we are mainly a self catering lodge, we do offer breakfast and dinner options on request. Dont be shy, just let us know your requirements.

Free good quality Wi-fi is avaiable on the deck itself for your convenience. (There is no Wi-fi in the chalets).

And lest we not forget our 12 by 6m swimming pool which sparkles all year round and is surrounded by the most beautiful gardens, lawns and my favourite, the Fever trees.

Although we do not do any conferences ourselves, The Rustic Deck is ideal for wedding stay overs, church group stay overs, family holidays, business and conference stay overs, tourists from around the globe and anyone else who just needs to get away from it all. We are also ideally located for people who need accommodation while visiting family or friends in nearby hospitals or clinics. 

The Rustic Deck is less than five minutes from Gallagher Estate, central Midrand and other conference facilities.
